The Aladdin, X" and Vik Recordings 1953-55" - Louis Jordan

The Aladdin, X" and Vik Recordings 1953-55"
One of the biggest RnB recording stars of the 1940s.... due to his having spent a still unbeaten 113 weeks at the #1 spot - Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five had scored 57 national R&B chart hits between 1942 and 1951, including chart-toppers such as "Choo Choo Ch'boogie", "Caldonia", "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chicken", "Jack, You're Dead!", "Saturday Night Fish Fry", "Buzz Me", "Ain't That Just Like A Woman", "G I Jive" and others.

Ironically, Jordan was dropped from his label, Decca, just as he had been ranked in the 1953 Down Beat magazine popularity poll for his alto saxophone playing, while the Tympany Five appeared in the 'Best Combo' section for the first time and, to add insult to injury, his latest single was selling better than any other from the past three years . It looked like all the new developments in music of the early 1950's had left Louis behind... but NO! Here, all in one place, are his 1953-1955 challenges to the emerging RocknRoll, and you know what? Louis had 'em on the ropes!

28 great rockin' slabs of crazy jump blues from the master is what we have here... tunes you'll love! Just try and keep from dancing to these!!! Louis Jordan's legacy lives on in the smash hit musical "5 Guys Named Moe", based on his work and unique style... the heppest cat of all remains timeless!
